, and convincing these middle- class people that government had been identified with the interests of minorities and the poor and was not working for them anymore and luring them over to become the republican base. that title gets a lot of attention, because we have seen such a rationalized -- such a campaign, particularly as mitt romney and paul ryan use welface that is -- use a version of welfare that is blackface. it may not be working for them. tavis: the subtitle is no less provocative. "why we long for a golden age that never was." a majority of americans that believe our best days are behind us. there are many who believe that maybe the 21st century belongs to china or somebody else. it ain't ours. what do you say to that? >> the tragic thing about this is that there is a loss of confidence in the future. there was a golden age for a lot of white people. not all. but when i tell the story with my family, i show how my grandparents climbed out of desperate poverty in the depression into the middle class really in one generation, and some of their children proceeded into what may be called
of government, and governing one month before the presidential election. but they spent most of their time arguing over the economy. the 90 minute debate in denver, colorado, one of the few battleground states that could decide the election. candidates concentrated on how to revive the economy. >> the only way to meet governor romney's pledge of not reducing the deficit, or not adding to the deficit, is by burdening middle-class families, now that's -- not my analysis. >> the president has a view very similar to the view he had when he ran four years ago, a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle down government would work. that's not the right answer for america. >> romney kept attacking o mode instructions. obama some times had trouble getting a word in. many u.s. media analysts say romney had a belttter performan. the candidates have two more debates they have five weeks to win over undecided voters. turkish forces have fired artillery shells across the border into syria. they're retaliating for syrian mortars that landed in southern turkey.
. the two firms denied being influenced by the chinese government. john sudworth is in shanghai. what is the reaction there to this congressional hearing? >> there's been a statement out by the chinese foreign ministry suggesting that the chinese telecommunications companies operate within the law, but they have gained their success through their own commercial competitiveness and that they should not be singled out by u.s. congressional committees for criticism in this way. so it appears the chinese government is already lining up in defense. this is a damning report from an official body singling out two companies by name and suggesting that they simply have not done enough over the course of this investigation to demonstrate that they are free from influence from beijing. >> my understanding is the foreign ministry has done slightly more than just condemn this. have they not said this is the result of some kind of prejudice in america of chinese companies? >> in a sense, that is in the context in which there is a kind of growing focus on the issues of their trade and open access. i
global initiative, business and government and ngo s were in attendance to talk about big ideas, big problems. one of the problems they talked about at both places was syria. another was middle east protest about a film that attacked mohammed and the third was iran and nuclear weapons. we begin with the former president of the united states bill clinton in conversation with me and my colleague at cbs nora o'donnell. >> rose: do you think this election the president has said that change has to come from outside rather than in washington, that this election has the possibility of producing a change that will be able to overcome gridlock. >> i don't think it to the only has the possibility, i think it almost certainly will. and let me explain why. i think the president's going to win but let's assume governor romney won. if he wins, that almost certainly means the republicans will hold on to the house and it will be about 50/50 in the senate, more or less the way it is now. you can't filibuster a budget. it's the only thing that doesn't require 60 votes in the senate to pass o as oppose
's policies of trickle-down government. >> i am concerned the path we're on has been unsuccessful. the president has a view to one similar when he ran four years ago, that a bigger government spending more, taxing more, regulating more -- a trickle- down government -- would work. that is not the right answer for america. >> president obama was more subdued in his comments, failing to make one mention of romney's infamous 47%, and his background of bain capital. addressing romney's tax plan, obama said romney's effort to cut taxes for the wealthy would be to the gutting of essential government programs. box for 18 months he has been running on this tax plan. five weeks before the election, now he is saying his big, bold idea is, "never mind." the fact is, if you are lowering the rates the way you described, governor, then it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only affect high-income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it is math. >> mitt romney challenged obama's assertion that his tax plan would cost the

it collided with another boat. 120 people were on board when it sank. dozens did not survive. the government claimed that numerous obstacles were what prevented the passengers from escaping safely. survivors have been taken to hospitals across hong kong. the cause of the accident, which took place over a long holiday weekend, is still unknown. officials have said the priority is to locate all the missing passengers. >> the president of georgia has conceded that his party has lost the parliamentary elections. he said it was clear that the opposition party hadary majorit. their leader, the country's richest man already, had declared victory. it is the first time in their post-soviet history the power changed hands without a resolute -- revolution. he said he did not agree with the policies of the green coalition party. >> you know that for us, for me, this news was fundamentally unacceptable and remains so. there are deep differences between us and we think that their views are completely wrong. but this is how democracy works and we respect that very much. >> we are in dupont -- tbilisi. tell
, or tax cuts for the rich, slashing government, slashing help for precisely those who need it, slashing government's role in infrastructure, in science and technology, would take us so far away from what we need, i wish president obama had the revenues to do more, but it is the republican side that is blocking that because that party has one idea only. and that is to cut taxes for the rich. we have this multi-brazilian there running for office. his money is in the cayman island. he pays 13% in taxes. he says the most important thing is to cut the tax rates at the top for the. it is mind-boggling that we have this kind of blatant candidacy. people are hurting, people are upset. that is why this weirdness even has a choice. but it would take as exactly in the wrong direction. president obama could have done more and would have done more if the republican opposition had not blocked the end of the bush era tax cuts for the rich, for example. so romney is in quite a position to be blaming president obama for that when it is exactly this side that has made the kind of recovery we need so flee
what we're seeing is a government seeking to assure its key constituents and to send a signal to the outside world in the face of what they consider pressure from the south and the government is strong and the national security of the north korea the safe. >> it's given that the south has only increased its missile capacity. >> absolutely. and i think we need to trecks last few months have been very tense on the korean peninsula, and there's been no love lost and the outgoing president is seen as someone who is hostile to the north and that certainly is how the knot paints him. this is very much a political gang waiting for the political senses of december and north koreans are not going to give an inch until they see the new president taking over in january. but for now, as you say, they have every reason to take a tough stance. >> thank you for your time on gmt. let's take a look at some of the other stories making hirnes around the world today. mexican authorities say the leader of the drug cartel appears to have been killed in a fire fight with marines. final forensic test

. he said so many stupid things but one thing was interesting, he said to control it, to govern the italians is not difficult. it is impossible. so in that situation like that, it would have been impossible to control anything. so i left. >> rose: so you left. >> and then i became a free bird. >> rose: and how did that feel? >> fantastic. it was fantastic. because i had been music director all my life since 1968, in florence. london philharmonic, philadelphia orchestra after armandi,bascala, so after so many years of hard work, not only artistically and musically, but all of the other things that music -- a good and honest music director is to take care of, i worked so hard, that certainly i felt -- i feel light, i have to do only music when i want, where i want, and how i want, i was, i felt like a bird, a as i said before, ligero, and that's when the philadelphia philharmonic asked me to be the music director. i did several concerts, many concerts with th the philharmonc and beautiful concerts, i admire those musicians. i think they are very good, and they have, i have wonderf
protest with the japanese government in a dispute. this one in the sea of japan. japan claims that the islands, south korea controls them. ministry officials say a japanese helicopter entered a restricted area around the island. south korea's kbs television reported the incident. defense ministry officials say the helicopter took off from a japanese self-defense ship about 50 kilometers east of the island. they say, it entered a buffer zone just outside south korean airspace. fighter pilots issued warnings then the helicopter left. air craft must receive permission to enter the area. japan's maritime self defense force officials denied there was a problem. they say the helicopter's crew was taking part in routine training over open sea. they admit the aircraft, entered the buffer zone but say it never flew into south korean airspace. taiwan's envoy to japan calling for a quick resumption of talks on fish rights around the island. returned to tokyo after three weeks away to protest japan's purchase of the island. >> there is no change in taiwan's claim of sovereignty over the i
passed overwhelmingly by republicans in states with republican legislatures and republican government. that includes efforts to crack down on voter registration drives, to make it harder for people to register by demanding proof of citizenship. that means cutting back on early voting. that requires the government- issued i.d. to cast a ballot. that prevents ex-felons from voting after they served their time. purging the voter rolls. these are all laws that have been passed by republicans and republican states. that is why the article was titled the gop war on voting. tavis: why are the republicans pushing this issue? what is the take away for them? >> if you ask republicans why they are pushing the issue, they will give you a two word response. voter fraud. if you ask me, it is because they looked at the 2008 election and they saw a massive turnout from young voters, hispanics, and african- americans, termed coalition of the ascendant. they said, this cannot happen again. the demographics are changing that if this coalition of the ascendant turns out in the same numbers in 2012 and go
. presenting a summary, two of the jurists said israeli violations were impossible without u.s. government backing. >> the tribunal finds that israel's ongoing colonial settlement expansion, its racial separatism policies, as well as its violent militarism would not be possible without the united states economic military and diplomatic support. >> the russell tribunal session here in new york will give us the opportunity to further persuade people who believe in justice and equality and peace in this country that they should join the campaign for solidarity with palestinian people and palestinian freedom. the ousted president mohamed nasheed after he ignored a summons to appear in court. he is facing charges of illegally ordering the arrest of a judge appointed by gayoom, who ruled the maldives for 30 years before nasheed became its first democratically elected president in 2008. nasheed was ousted earlier this year in what he described as a coup at gunpoint by gayoom's supporters. nasheed is well known internationally for his activism on the issue of global warming, which he says threaten

government and the position they find themselves in , presumably, they would want to stop this. >> certainly, they don't want to get embroiled in a bilateral fight with the syrian regime on the ground. that has been clear from the beginning. there is a concerted nato division -- if there were a concerted nato decision to intervene, then turkey would support that, but it does not want to fight on its own . the dangers are evident. on the other hand, it is spilling across their border. they have tens of thousands of refugees to cope with and now they have their own citizens been killed on their own soil. so they felt clearly they had to respond to that. i suspect they will keep it to a minimum at the moment and yet keep open the option of hitting back harder if they feel they have to. >> thank you very much. could it be a moment which perhaps turns the u.s. presidential election campaign > -- ? the first televised debate has been widely judged a triumph for mitt romney, who had been lagging in opinion polls. he has often been called stiff and awkward in public, judy big -- yet he appeared more
needed the u.s. government and we were in a position to tell the banks, let's go back to the social function, very important social functions. the banks have to provide in our society. and we lost that moment. >> rose: and the condition of the banks today is, of the big banks in wall street. >> well, to be frank, we really aren't sure because there's not the kind of transparency that we need. like one of my criticisms of dodd frank, we kept a lot of, for instance, these derif deriff-- derivative transparents. >> they made them a lit bit more. >> but as long as you have so much money at stake where you don't know what is at risk, you know, let me just give you one example. there are about 3 to 350 trillion dollars of derivatives that are based on libor. libor we now know is a-- number. >> explain what that is. >> the london interbank lending rate. so it's the rate, supposed to be an arm's length rate at which unone bank lends to each other. but the banks aren't lend fog each other s so what does it mean? it's a concept-- what rate do we think some other bank would lend to us. and we
feeling is that the spanish government totally rejected what is happening here. they spread rejection and hate with comments calling us the damned catalan that does not want to cooperate. >> there are feelings to be a lot better off if they were not part of spain. it put this together, i think we are relatively close to reaching our goal -- if you put those together. i think we are on the right path. >> but catalonia is a path often dreamed of but never taken. the regional government wants at the very least fiscal autonomy. they called a snap election and threatened to hold a referendum on independence, but could this iconic spanish city ever leave spain? at the headquarters of the ruling party, i talked to one of the men who decide that. of the union party that runs the region. >> it is a difficult moment in a rich land that between 8% of 9% of our gdp every year to spain. the result is not happy at all because there are double the cuts in terms of social services, health services, double cups of the rest of spain and double taxes. that is a really big imbalance. we must solve that.
government denies declarations of torture and arbitrary arrests in gaza. that's time where we bring you the business news now. aaron is here for that. some interesting figures worrying as we are used to hearing tesco going from strength-to-strength. >> we are talking about the largest chain in the u.k. out of every eight pounds one goes through a tesco till. that is because company today reported its first fall or drop in profits in nearly 20 years. the first half of this year $2.7 billion was made but down 11.5% from last year. why? we know tesco spent $1.5 billion in revamping. that's costly. but they are saying smaller supermarket chains are starting to eat into their market share and the big operations, big problems and tesco can no longer rely on overseas businesses to offset any shortages here. have a listen. >> what troubled me a little bit about these numbers was on how many fronts tesco is struggling, even overseas. some of the same problems in the u.k. seem to be appearing in central europe and asia. but tesco aren't doing quite as well. again, it has to do with a lot of expos
. i house oversight and government reform committee, republicans said they set a hearing for next week to investigate. hillary clinton says she plans to cooperate with the probe. the pennsylvania judge has struck down the state's election law requiring voters to show photo id. pennsylvania's law allowed voting only to those who could produce a state driver's license, government employee id, or a state non-driver id card. but on tuesday, a commonwealth court judge ruled the state does not have enough time to adequately provide id to all those that need it in time for the november 6 election. the law was among the strictest to pass as a nationwide effort critics say is aimed at disenfranchising lower-income residents and people of color who tend to vote democratic. after its passage earlier this year, pennsylvania's republican house majority leader, mark -- mike turzai, predicted it would help romney win the state. tuesday's ruling does help pave the way for its use in future elections. mississippi also announced it will not enforce its law requiring photo ids at the polls. palau was put
-minute showdown at the university of denver. the platform gave govern romney an opportunity to reignite his campaign which has suffered some this summer. they sparred across a range of issues. >> there's a various done of small businesses across the country saying what's the effect of obamacare in your hiring plans. three quarters said it makes us less likely to hire people. i just don't know how the president could come into office, facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment and economic crises at the kitchen table, and spend his energy and passion for two years fighting for obamacare instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. >> the irony is that we've seen this model work really well, in massachusetts. because govern romney did a good thing, working with democrats in the state to set up what is essentially the identical model, and as a consequence, people are covered there. it hasn't destroyed jobs. when govern romney stood on the stage with other republican candidates for the nomination, and he was asked, would you take $10 of spending cuts for just $1 of r
with the government. he called on his conservative rival to stand together against the u.s. and europe. conservative politicians are fighting for power. iranians will go to the polls next june to elect successor to ahmadinejad. >>> iranians are finding imports more and more expensive. and the rial's fall has hurt businesses abroad. many iranian businesses trade through the united arab emirates. 400,000 iranians live in its largest city, dubai. they ship daily commodities home across the persian gulf. many are going to banks to exchange rials for dollars but some money exchanges in dubai stopped accepting the currency. one trader said he'll have to stop exporting to iran. a spokesperson for the iranian chamber of commerce says businesses in dubai are getting one-third of previous prices. >> they are not getting any money out of iran for the goods they are sending. they stopped sending goods. therefore, they have to reduce their businesses. >> he said the rial's continued fault seems inevitable. >>> a senkaku islands dispute. one of the newspaper's columnists suggested that china, rather than japan, h
is not necessarily improved. so says a brand new study funded by the british government. the study found that older, cheaper, generic drugs were treating mental illness were better across-the-board than newly marketed medications. when it comes to prescription drugs, how can you tell when new really means improved? we'll ask dr. sharon levine. >>> new study i referred doctor sharon levine, from san francisco, associated executive director of kaiser permanenty. that new study refers to schizophrenia and the new drug it was found is better than the existing drug, right? >> yes, that's right this. is a very important studdy and it demonstrated in a large population that the older antipsychotic drug, heldol, was more affective than the newer category called a typical antipsychotics. and it really speaks to the fact that we have a buys, all of us, consumers, physicians, we assume that new means improved. and in fact, what is really true is that needs to be established by solid evidence and not just assumption. this is a very important study for the federal government. very important study for state gove
to continue to fund and support these governments. i think that's a very legitimate point. but on the one hand, he says -- you know, he blames obama for whatever tension there is in the u.s./israel relationship today and i would argue there's very little tension in the state-to-state relationship but a lot of tension between the prime minister of israel and the president of the united states. but all of that is entirely obama's fault. anything that's wrong with the u.s./israel relationship is obama's fault. the fact that the prime minister of israel has continued with a settlement policy which is extremely controversial in israel somehow comes no where into the equation. so we're supposed to believe on the one hand that america's supposed to lead the arab world from the front with one hand while adopting a policy toward israel that is more pro-israeli than anything any government in washington has articulated for a long time. how the two of them will go together i don't know. and for good measure, though-- and i think this is praiseworthy-- governor romney has called for a palestinian state an
nesome parts of this nation but at the end of the day, women care about the economy, jobs and government spending and they will capture the vote on some of those issues. >> we have consensus. i think it will motivate the base which i think is a strategy of the republican party but it won't close the gap. >> we are all in agreement. this won't make or break the election of the romney/ryan ticket. it's about the economy and other issues that are more important. >> if it's supposed to -- and you're right, it's a base motivator but if it's supposed to be a base motivator and the polls show romney really falling behind at this point, is it going to help? >> i don't finish she falling behind. there are so many polls out there that you can look at. but it really -- >> most recent abc news, washington post, and those kind of polls have shown us is that activityically significant gap and in the battle ground states, it's even worse like in ohio. all of a sudden they were neck-and-neck and a few months ago, romney was ahead and obama is 6 or 7 points ahead. >> you have to look at enthusiasm in tho
to governments in need and they'll use it to purchase state bonds and bail out banks directly. analysts say they do expect one of the first tasks for those managers will be to purchase spanish sovereign bonds. well, imf economists zeroed in on the fiscal health of their host. they said planned increases in the consumption tax will not keep japan out of trouble. the economists released their latest report on the fiscal outlooks for various countries. they're predicting japan's debt will rise to nearly 2 1/2 times gdp in 2013 no. now, lawmakers passed a bill to double the consumption tax rate to 10% by 2015 but the imf report says that's just not enough and calling on leaders to carry out additional large-scale tax hikes along with spending cuts and saying japan really needs to generate at least a quarter of a trillion dollars in revenue over the next ten years. that would add up to more than 5% of gdp. here is an interesting sidenote. chinese bankers had planned to be here but they're going to be staying away. state-run xinhua news agency says the bankers are protesting against japan's natio
the job when nato leaves? >> yes, indeed. >> rose: how about governance? >> honestly speaking, we still have problems and challenges when it comes to governance and the international community has committed itself to assisting the afghan government in capacity building so that the afghan government can provide basic services to the afghan people and step up the fight against corruption, etc. i had a talk with president karzai recently and he agreed that we must give top priority to that. and actually he has taken some measures to fight corruption. >> rose: and he's leaving-- there's a new election in 2014. he will be departing, we assume. >> yeah. and it's for the afghans to elect their leadership. but let me add to this that we have actually seen progress in the development of afghanistan. the economic growth is around 7% to 8% annually from low level, but it's quite impressive. more people have access to electricity. we see flourishing markets. the educational system has improved. eight million children go to school. more than one-third are girls. 30% of teachers are female teachers.
of government and private funds, young people are paid to work in the gardens and also learn to cook the food they grow. >> the other challenge is people don't really know what to do with food. you know, they're not sure how to cook fresh vegetables. so it's easier to buy meat and make french fries, right? and so what you end up with is kids who have full bellies, but they're starved. >> reporter: food deserts contribute to high rates of diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. the problem is particularly acute in areas where the only option for food shopping is a small neighborhood convenience store. >> we really need to care about the entire person, holistically. if we're just caring about a person's soul, their spiritual part, then we're not really caring about people. >> reporter: kevin brown grew up in holly grove, another neighborhood devastated by hurricane katrina. his father was the pastor of a church in the neighborhood. >> in our community, there was a high incidence of heart disease, diabetes and food-related illnesses. and so we envisioned using space that had been ruined b
famous 47% comment that nearly half of americans believe they are victims entitled to government support. during a fox news appearance thursday night, sean hannity asked romney how he would have responded if obama had brought it up. >> clearly, in a campaign with hundreds, if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you say something that does not come out right. i said something that was completely wrong in this case. i absolutely believe, however, my life has shown i care about 100%. that has been demonstrated throughout my life. this whole campaign is about the 100%. >> fast-food chain tripoli is reached a deal with the florida- based coalition of immokalee workers to improve wages according conditions for farmworkers who pick tomatoes used in its products. the company previously had refused to sign a contract affirming its commitment to the coalition's fair food program, which 10 other companies, including mcdonald's and burger king, have already joined. thursday's agreement comes a day after a coalition member appeared on "democracy now!" in denver to
